Malinda is a 30 year old mother with 2 children and has been driving for 10 years but has been in many incidents of being pulled over by the police for various things. She owns a small old Toyota ute and it has broken down many times. She lives on a back dirt road. Today she has forgotten to pick her kids up from school and has gotten a phone call from the school about it.
Hello, yes i'm on my way now sorry about that i will be their soon
Now She is on her way to the school to pick her kids up and starts to do over 70 kilometres in a 50 zone. Has only ever been in one car accident where she hit the back of someones car. But the times that she has been pulled over were because of speeding and using her phone while driving.
Malinda is driving when she hears her phone buzz. she looks at her phone and its a text message from her husband and instead of pulling over and looking at it or waiting she picks up the phone and looks at the text message. It says 'When are you going to be home'.
BUZZ!! ( Malinda's phone buzzes)
All of a sudden Malinda hasn't looked at the road for at least 5 seconds now and when she looks up she realise's she's about to hit a car!! She quickly swerves back onto the right side of the road. Malinda was one block away from the school just when this happen. She was being unsafe and taking a risk without thinking.
Malinda dosen't realise that there was a highway patrol car behind her and saw the whole thing happen. He puts his sirens on and Malinda pulls over.
